Australian Finalists in GRI Awards
Wednesday, 30th April 2008 at 1:45 pm

Two very different Australian organisations are finalists in the inaugural GRI Readers’ Choice Awards for Sustainability Reports – ANZ Banking and the City of Melbourne.

The awards initiative undertaken by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) plans to reveal new leaders in sustainability reporting announcing 45 finalists of its Readers’ Choice Awards for sustainability reporting, which were selected by readers in 70 countries.

Ernst Ligteringen, Chief Executive, Global Reporting Initiative says the level of interest shows that readers do take companies’ sustainability reports seriously. Investors, civil society organizations, employees and other stakeholders have taken this opportunity to express what they like and don’t like about reporting today.

In total, more than 1,700 people cast scores for the 800 reports entered in the inaugural GRI Readers’ Choice Awards. Readers accessed the voting website in five languages, which enabled people from around the world to express their views.

A group of eight prominent experts oversaw the awards process to ensure that it was conducted with the highest degree of integrity.

The field of 800 reports has been narrowed to 45 finalists, which received the highest number of scores relative to the total scores cast . Winners will be announced in eight categories at an awards ceremony during GRI’s Amsterdam Global Conference on Transparency and Sustainability on May 7.

Alongside the Readers’ Choice Awards, GRI commissioned leading trend monitors KPMG and SustainAbility to conduct a global survey of sustainability report users’ expectations and needs. The Global Readers’ Survey Report will also be revealed at the GRI conference in May.

Together, the awards and the survey report will answer the question: Does any one read these reports and, if so, what do they really think?

This topic and others will be discussed at GRI’s Amsterdam Global Conference on Transparency and Sustainability on May 7 – 9, which will attract over 1,000 participants.
